IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / The Kiddie Pool has been reset
« on: June 02, 2018, 12:54:49 pm »
Hey guys, just a quick FYI regarding the AKA Normal Server in BOS (otherwise known as the kiddie pool, icons and dots turned on) has been reset.

Scorp was kind enough to reset the map after I asked him last night. Ever since Scorp fixed the available aircraft and the ammo load outs we can now compete on an even level with the Red Horde Bastages. The pool is now open, all you BOS newbies that need help can find me camped out in there most evenings when IL2 1946 is not running.

So get your goggles, floaties and swim fins on and kick some red horde butt.

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / Relent, I need you to be my Oppenheimer.

We need you to adjust the loadouts for the B-29's at the Allied supply base.

Please make nuclear weapons available so we can carpet bomb Taipan and Agiles empire.

Pretty please.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / AKA BOX Servers Down????

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Observations Dynamic Campaign Server
« on: May 28, 2018, 09:04:53 pm »
I spoke with Relent the other evening and mentioned that I thought we needed to start a thread to place some of the observations our guys have discovered regarding gameplay on our dynamic campaign servers that may be helpful to everyone that enjoys playing on them.

Here is the first from my perspective.

Capturing an Airfield: Tonight I flew on the AKA Dynamic NORMAL campaign. It's running the Kuban map and at the start of the mission, the airfield at Kerch was in Russian hands, and had 0 supply. However it had full AAA protection and there was a tank battle going on in the 609.4 grid just SE of the airfield. Wolf, Rage and myself eliminated the AAA at the airfield, and over most of the mission we destroyed most of the nearby enemy tanks. We also eliminated the AAA at the nearby dugout locations just NE of the airfield. Once all the AAA was eliminated Wolf and I flew in 2 - JU-52's with a dozen paratroopers each. 24 Total and dropped them directly onto the airfield. Then we RTB'ed back to our starting airfield. Jim also drove one of the tanks from the nearby Kerch Tank battle to the airfield and parked it there. When the mission recycled, Kerch was back in German hands. Not sure if there was anything put out by the IL2 developers regarding base capturing, but this worked for us this mission.

Anyone have any other observations regard in the dynamic campaign game play, please post in this thread.

Anybody else experience this server antic?

OK, so I saw Scorp and Rel's post about us (AKA) now having both a Expert and a Normal Dynamic Campaign server set up and decided to test it out. Went in and it looks great guys, nice work. Saw you guys also setup a site for stats, again nice work. But, saw that I can't fly any German plane other than the JU-52 or the JU-57. Still only got the Kuban aircraft in there I see.

Sooooooo ............................... It's off to my other favorite kiddie pool. Coconut's Normal.

Got in great, went to a base to take off ......., Ruza, Raza, Rozu they all sound the same. It was one of those. Got into a 109-F4, loaded it up and started my engine. All OK ...............

Except, whats this funny looking message ....... "The staff at Ruza stated you are NOT Authorized to take-off from Ruza in a 109-F4, shut down your aircraft, do not attempt to take-off or you will be kicked from the server!"

WTF is this crap  :o

So naturally I said to myself. "STICK IT" ................ and I took-off anyway. Once airborne, got the gear up and then got this odd message. "Kicking players for unauthorized take off's has not been enabled on this server yet. It's your lucky day"

Ok, thats my odd story, anyone else get a load of this garbage yet? Is some new sort of joke by the IL2 Gods?

Now I understand that yes it is a dynamic campaign server, and the missions run for some time and build on each other. I can even see how some people can get upset when they fly and move A/C from one base to another. Then leave and come back 5-6 hours later or maybe the next day. Do you really think that on an OPEN server with no password that everyone coming in is going to be aware that Joe Blow flew a 109-F4 into this base two days ago and expects it to still be there?


IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 / @ Gos - Check Commanders map status please

Hey guys, I ran across some interesting you tube videos on setting up stick sensitivities that some of the new guys to BOS may find helpful. I apologize if these were posted before, but I hadn't seen them before on our site.

This one I found quite helpful as it was specific to the Thrustmaster Warthog stick:

Here is another on stick settings, little different from the one above specific to the CH products:

This one is one guys solution to dealing with what he calls the wobble in BOS:

Here is one on Navigating in BOS:

Finally, this one I found highly instructive in regards to the use of the Stabilizer, especially effective for the Me-109:

Hopefully some of us may find this helpful.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Ju-52 ???
« on: March 28, 2018, 01:24:22 pm »
Just purchased the Ju-52. Got it up and I'm starting to figure it out. Found out how to drop paratroops but for the life of me I cant figure out the cargo issue.

They have two options from what I can see. The cargo pods which I assume you drop by parachute. And the second is a vrgo load out.

On coconuts normal. You need to land at the field your resupplying. Unload your cargo, then takeoff and return to you originating airfield for the resupply mission to count.

How do you unload or open the cargo doors. Who do ai have to call to push it out.

Any ideas or thoughts?

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Best IL2 BoS night for me so far.

Yes, the Coconuts Dynamic Campaign - Normal server is back. Had good time flying it with AKA_Wolf tonight. I will be doing it again. But, flying German .... not ruskie!

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / AKA BoS server question

Any chance we can get at least 1 active axis base with axis aircraft on this server?

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Shout Out to TG for helping get set up in BOS
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:54:36 am »
Big Thanks to TG for his patience in getting me set up and running in BOS.  Next big thing to work on is getting a handle on multi-engine aircraft. Someone mentioned that a P-38 is coming soon.  :o

Hey guys, I am looking to replace my old WIRED headset and microphone system with one of the newer wireless type headset and microphone systems.

I have been looking online at Amazon for some of these, but the headsets look extremely huge and problematic for attaching the TrackIR5 Trackclip Pro LED device.

Anybody in the squad have a wireless headset and mic system that also uses the Trackclip Pro headset?
If so, what brand and type are you using. I am looking at the CORSAIR VOID PRO RGB Wireless Gaming Headset and would like some feedback before I decide to buy.


General Discussion / Drunken Monkey's of St Kitt's

The drunken monkeys of St. Kitts.

I met my monkey, shortly after disembarking the cruise ship at the St. Kitt's port.

General Discussion / For all you dog lovers out there.
« on: March 20, 2017, 05:55:26 pm »
Last year my son who still lives under my roof asked about possibly adopting a dog. It had been a year since I had to put my 16 y/o Siberian Huskey down. It was tough decision on my part as with my age and how I got so attached to that Siberian, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go through all that attachment thing and how it would work out. But, my wife talked me into it and I said yes. So last February, my son Sean filled out an application to adopt a 10 month old, Australian Blue Heeler. The dog is totally deaf, but that didn't matter to my son. He did his homework on the breed and learned how to deal with a dog with that type of impairment. His adoption application was accepted and we drove out to Racine Wisconsin to pick him up and bring him home.

Tyson, thats his dog's name and Sean are now practically inseparable. Last March/April my wife and I took a long road trip out west to visit relatives in Las Vegas, Sean and Tyson tagged along and he was a great dog in the car right from the start. We stopped along the way in Houston as the Texan's are my sons favorite team, went to a White Sox spring training game, visited the Grand Canyon, and had a great time in Vegas. Even stopped at Meteor Crater on the way home. All in all it was great trip.

Well it been over a year now and Tyson has become part of the family. When Sean is at work, or out of the house Tyson is usually bothering me to throw him frisbees, balls or anything he can chase and catch. Or when I'm flying he trys to curl up by my feet which makes working my flight pedals a down right hard task.

My son posted a video of him and Tyosn on You Tube and I thought I would share it with all my squad mates.
